This will likely be a game that is tight in the fourth quarter because these two teams have played each other close ever since MU joined the Southeastern Conference. If MU can rattle Gamecocks quarterback Ryan Hilinksi, the Tigers might be able to win comfortably. But they haven’t shown they can beat South Carolina and the Wyoming game is still too fresh to trust them in a close game. Missouri heads into its bye week 2-2, marking another disappointing start. South Carolina 41, Missouri 39
